Topic: Which is Best? Organic or Conventional
In social media and popular culture, there seems to be an assumption that “Organic is Healthy.” But what does the science say? And what about foods that you can’t get organic, or are genetically engineered? We will cover all these questions and more, while giving you the most evidence-based and up to date information that will leave you feeling confident about your food choices.
Our February cooking class theme was Veggies For Breakfast and I had a co-teacher, Jessica Beardsley, MS, RD, LDN! Check out our three easy and tasty recipes that help you get more veggies into your day!
In this class, we focused on items that you make for breakfast that contain vegetables. We went over recipe ideas bor breakfast that contain vegetables, how to get more veggies in your morning meals, and why you need vegetables in your diet.
Here’s what we made:
The muffin recipe is perfect for getting vegetables into your breakfast meal. It is a combination of tasty muffin with the added nutrients that come from the carrots. These carrot muffins are super simple to make and can be made in prep for the week. This recipe can even stored in the freezer and used for later!
Veggie Egg Muffins
This is a great meal prep for breakfast meals. These Veggie Egg Muffins are easy to bake and can be stored in the freezer for later. This is a great way to get those veggies into breakfast! The eggs, peppers, onions, and spinach are great for adding nutrients into a morning meal.
Favorite Winter Smoothie
This is a winter smoothie favorite that the whole family can enjoy. The prep and blend is super quick and easy. Just chop up some ingredients and put them in the blender!
This recipe is also great because you can choose the liquid you want whether it’s for you, your spouse, or kids! It also provides some fruit and veggies into your meals.

I make something similar to a frittata also, but it is completely done in the microwave. It’s a one meal prep and I use 10-11 veggies, egg whites, olive oil and cheese is optional. A single serve microwaveable container is a must for these simple meal preps. I always precook my veggies in the microwave 1st for about 4 mins, then add the egg whites and cheese for 2 more minutes and top it off with a salsa. It’s great for any meal!
